How to be like Zorba

Zorba on life

Some food for thought:

Despite continual romantic, financial, and familial disasters, he says, “Zorba can dance in the present moment, because he knows that stress — the full catastrophe — is not good or bad, but just part of the way life is. You’re in it, so how can you best relate to what’s happening, both for yourself and for any others involved?”
